Interesting on the ac vent.

As for the awning, i thought the same thing last weekend when we opened ours up in the driveway, the power awning is super handy, but at one point on each side it is just a hair over 6' high. I can just barely clear it without getting minor brain surgery, but once we are camping and not on a concrete driveway it may become very irritating at times.

Did you look at the arms of awning? The power awning on my x23B has arms that are adjustable so you can change the angle.

When all the way up, my awning is almost flat. When all the way down, the end is probably 2 feet lower.

awning adjustment

I was wondering why the awning bars were so low,so I looked and looked for an adjustment,I found a clip on each side that I popped out and the awning went up considerably higher, still too low, its like the awning bars should be mounted a little higher on the frame. They use special rivets so I can't drill them and get more clearance. The good thing is as I age I shrink so in a while I'll glide right under.
Still love the trailer.
Still the right size for us.
The selling dealer said nothing about an adjustment.

I can get a picture tonight when I get home...

But in the meantime, there's a row of holes on the side of the awning and one of them will have a detent ball in it.

You press the detent ball in and pull/push on the arm till it pops out into a higher/lower hole.

Here's a pic of my x23B awning arm (anybody know how to keep the board from rotating the image?) (answer, ensure no dimension of the pic is more than 1200 pixels)
